2013 and earlier Nissan Altima Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • I am wondering if you think the extended warranty really saves you money. Are you all buying them? If so, when are you buying them and how much are you paying? I hear that if you want them, the price is negotiatble. So far, my new Altima is 5 months old, and I have not bought the warranty.
  • Please give me a name of a reliable dealer, Sir.

    I am willing to visit and buy tomorrow only...

    what is in the convenience package?
    where is this dealer at?
  • Im heading to a dealership tomorrow to check out a deal on this 2011 2.5S sedan:

    - Premium Audio Pkg
    - Convenience Pkg
    - Convenience Plus Pkg
    - 5 Piece Floor Mat
    - Fog Lamps
    - Splash Guards
    - 2.5SL Pkg
    - Rear Spoiler
    - Technology Pkg

    MSRP - $30,660
    Sale Price - $24,952

    (Given this is including November rebates that will be expired tomorrow, and also before TT&L)

    This is basically the exact car I'm looking for, and so far is the best deal I've seen online. How much lower do you think I can get them to go?

    just pulled the trigger yesterday.
    17000 otd w/6% tax, title included
    brand new car comes with slpash guards, mat set and kick plates
    good luck to everyone still in the market
  • Nice!

    What was the price before tax and title?
  • Just a general question:

    What is the lowest anyone has paid for a new 2010 Nissan Altima 2.5S before tax, title, fees etc.? Thanks.
  • you really should leave the maths to dealers and always negotiate with them only the OTD price coz that's the actual number that you're gonna pay
    i would say anywhere between 17-17.5k should be considered as a good deal. good luck
  • Just picked up a 2010 3.5SR for $23,716 before taxes. Came with premium package, sport package and kick plates. I bought it at Fitzmall in Chambersburg, PA. I thought it was a pretty good deal.
  • I was not looking for a new car in November, but I am now, and I cannot find a deal anywhere near as good. The best I have found for a 2010 is $18,366 plus TT&L. Sounds like the deals were much better in November? I mean, $17k INCLUDING TT&L is about $2.5k better than what I have seen. So if there is a $1,500 rebate going on now, how much was it in November? $4,000?
  • Where are you? I am in Texas and I just got a offer of 18700 OTD for a 2.5S.
  • I am in Texas. Houston, to be more precise. My best price was from Clear Lake Nissan, on the Gulf Freeway, and that was not an "S" model. Where are you getting the quote of $18.7 OTD? That is about $900 cheaper, and on a better model.

    18,366 plus TTL for just a 2.5 is totally unacceptable. I feel there is still enough room for the price to go down form what I got. I offered them 17000 OTD and will wait for their response. They still a lot of 2010 Altima in stock and I am in no harry any way. If I cannot get a price close to that I will go for the 2011 Camry or Subaru. They both have good deals now.
  • Things are heating up. I pointed the salesperson at this discussion (via email), and the price was lowered to $18,650 OTD. I contacted another Nissan dealer, who said he would beat that price. Then I received another email from Clear Lake Nissan, offering an extra $750 this weekend only. Let me see if I can attach a jpg image here:

    Nope, can't do it.
  • How was your experience at Clear Lake Nissan? I'm going over there tomorrow to test drive a 3.5SR. They claim they have one on their lot. It's not the color I want, but I'm hoping they can order what I want.
  • Clear Lake seemed all right. Their pricing was high for an "internet price", but once I got quotes from other dealers they fell into line.

    KellyP98! Thank you so much for referring that car service to me! I picked up my new Altima yesterday and I love it! Couldn't believe how easy that process was, they ended up negotiating $200 below invoice for me and all I had to do was pick it up. Tell your mom thanks too! Highly recommend to everyone looking at buying a new car!
  • Wondering if you guys think this is a good deal. I live in Ohio.

    Leasing a 2010 Altima 2.5 S (standard features) for $251.00/month, $0.00 down and $0.00 security deposit. My numbers are based on a lease price quote of $19,578, Adjusted Cap Cost of 21,343, a residual value of $12,824 (56%) and a money factor of 0.00095.

    I got price quotes from 3 different dealerships. Monthly payment went from $275.00 to $261.00 and finally to $251.00. I think I've hit rock bottom on the last offer.
  • Are you still buying the Altima? Do you mean Clear Lake give you $750 off from the $18650 OTD quote? If the price between 2010 Altima and any 2011 midsize car is less than 1500, I think I may go for the new ones. Camry is giving $5000 off now.
  • Clear Lake sent me an email, a "mass mailer", last Friday, offering $750 off of the best deal that I had already been offered. Good only for that weekend. I did not go back there, I was busy looking at Accords. It looks like I can get a new Accord for only about $1500 more than the Altima. I think the cars are about equal, but 3 years from now the Honda will be worth $3k to $4k more than the Altima.

    I've recently purchased an altima from a nissan dealer here in SC. Its a 2008 3.5 SE, with barely 20k miles on it. I think I paid a lot for that vehicle. Is there anyway I can salvage some incurred losses and maybe save myself a self-beating? This is my first vehicle here in US (I did do a lot of homework and in the end decided that it is altima that I wanted, especially since the time I test drove a couple at carmax). I know that I've been shopping at all the wrong places with all the wrong details, but I'm fairly new to the car world - a rookie.

    After I got the vehicle, I stumbled upon this forum. I know it doesnt really sound like a wise move on my part, but i'll be really obliged if I could pursue the correct course of action, and save me some valuable bucks. Hopefully some of you can pitch in and help me out.
  • ...I can get a new Accord for only about $1500 more than the Altima. I think the cars are about equal, but 3 years from now the Honda will be worth $3k to $4k more than the Altima.

    I highly doubt that you can get 3-4k more than the Altima. When I traded in my 2.5S '07 Altima for the 2.5S '10 Altima last Dec., I got about 13.5K on my '07 base on what people could get a new '10 Altima during that time.

    I will be surprise if you can get 16.5-17.5K on a '08 Accord LX now. That's about 2K depreciation in 3 years.
  • This is the deal I am getting on a 2010 leftover 2.5 S (MSRP - 23.4k). Used Amex Zag for the bottom line price. Initially thought it was too good to be true but the dealer agreed.

    Invoice - 2700 - 2000 rebate was basically the Zag deal. OTD price - 17.2k + 400 doc fee +350 reg/title + 15.50 tire tax. Got the color Silver color I wanted and also a decent price on the trade-in. Please note that the trade-in was negotiated independently.
  • Congrats first of all on purchasing your 3.5L Altima. I own the same, I researched my car for almost a year, then one day I ran across the current one I own and I did the deal. I met a dealer that was fair, I compared his price to what was advertised online and it was a fair price. I didn't overpay, I didn't get the cheapest price in town either. Now this dealer calls me every 6 months, checks on me, we purchased a Mazda 3 through him for my girlfriend. Now I'm itching for a Nissan Murano or Infiniti FX. No matter what, purchasing a vehicle is not an investment, its a necessity that will COST YOU MONEY. :)

    I purchased a 2008 Altima 2.5S coupe with 20k miles and a 100k bumper-to-bumper warranty for $18k + TTL a month ago. In your opinion, what's the most I should have paid for this? Reading this thread I can tell I could have found a much better deal- I'm just wondering how badly I got burned.

    Just got a price quote through AMEX (Zag) Car Purchase Program for 2011 Altima 3.5 SR Sedan (I'm in Los Angeles area):

    The price is before TTL and $55 doc fee. Manufacturing Adv. fee and Dest. charge are included.

    Could you please help? I have 2 questions:
    1) Is it a good deal?
    2) I assume TTL fees are standard for California and this type of vec.. Are any other fees that I should avoid when signing the deal?

    * [P01] 3.5SR PREMIUM PKG (PRM)
    * [R01] SPORT PKG (SPT)
    * $500 Customer Bonus Cash
    Expires on 01/03/11
    * $750 Customer Incentive
    Expires on 01/03/11
    MSRP as configured: $30,415
    Invoice as configured: $27,934
    MY PRICE: $25,684

    Thank you!

    Not sure how good it is...but check for current pricing. This may be the best week of the year to shop though. As for TTL, ball park 10% in California. Cheers!

    At AMEX they got exactly the same data as I got from report. They are pulling data from a single source. Basically what I was offered = to best local deal in report. But my question is: did anybody get a better deal than there?
  • I just got a 2.5S in Northern VA (MSRP 22900) for $17k OTD (all taxes, tags, fees incl) about a week or so ago. I thought it was a pretty good deal.
